    piss in total comfort without the fear of spooking the deer. No more bloody noise climbing up and down the tree. The biggest con to climbers is that 75% of the time you cannot set up at the best spots due to lack of a suitable tree. I sure don’t miss sitting cramped for 14 hours hanging off a tree in solid pissing rain, soaked to the skin in wet raingear.
    hahahh fair enough fenelon! its funny because ive been using a pop up for the last 3 years, i think ill still be putting a popup somewhere, but i did want to give this thing a try. the only thing i dont like about having a stationary tree stand is i cant move, although if i dont end up liking this thing i might just try and sell it and then move on to a traditional tree stand.

    just hate having the same scenery for the whole week sometimes lol. especially if youre having absolutely 0 action.

    I suggest using 9mm kernmantle rope girth hitched to the tree with a figure eight follow through knot (its easier than it sounds) and connected to the hunter with a prussic loop to a caribeener, if you can carry the weight use a rope long enough to rapel down if you get into trouble with the climber.
    this! ^ i also do not trust the Chinese crap. and im not sure why those harnesses are passed as them in any hunting stands.

    i work at heights so i know the real basic stuff to be secure, was thinking of just using a lanyard but im worried about the noise. might just go your route thank you !

    Savage hunting add? What the hell were they thinking. A woman wearing dun olive clothing with zero orange, carrying a set of antlers on her back. That puffy jacket will no doubt cough out a nice bark of goose down when the .308 round punches through her chest. Darwin award at its best!

    Thats exactly what I thought. Not a lot of thinking gone into that advertisement.

    I've got a Summit aluminum climber and its pretty comfortable but certainly doesn't climb as well as my buddies Lonewolf climber
    the summit is great for gun/crossbow hunting but not the best for bow hunting. I much prefer my saddle system for bowhunting
